10.1 Some listings provide for online payments (in addition to booking enquiries). Owners can choose to provide instant confirmation for online payments or can choose to view and then confirm online booking requests. Payment will only be charged once a booking is confirmed.
10.2 For online payments, owners can choose to require full payment, or just a deposit, to be made by credit card at the time of booking. If only a deposit is charged initially, full payment will subsequently be deducted from the renter’s credit card 10 days before the rental commences.
10.3 Renters are responsible for ensuring they have read the owner's terms for rental prior to making a booking.
10.4 We will email renters a booking confirmation, reference number and booking voucher for each confirmed online booking.
10.6 Renter payments for bookings will be received by credit card transaction through Trade Me’s online booking system. Trade Me will hold the money received from buyers on trust, in a non-interest bearing account until payment is made to the owner. Trade Me is authorised to deduct its fees. The owner will not earn interest on monies held by Trade Me.
10.7 Payment of a renter’s payment from the Trade Me bare trust account to the owner will be by electronic transfer to the owner’s nominated New Zealand bank account, less any fees and commissions payable, on the first Thursday after the renter has checked in. You are responsible for maintaining your bank account details and notifying Trade Me if they change. You agree to indemnify Trade Me against any bank charges or other costs that Trade Me may incur as a result of incorrect or out of date bank account information.
10.8 When a booking is confirmed Trade Me will provide a booking confirmation and receipt to the renter on behalf of the house owner.
